The house and Senate approved legislation that redefines pizza as a vegetable, and the President signed it. You can see our Congressman’s vote on HR2112 here. As you ponder this, please remember a few things.
- We’re talking about that cardboard crust pizza that is served in school lunches
- The rationale for the classification is that a slice of pizza contains three ounces of tomato paste
- A tomato is a fruit, not a vegetable
- Frank Wolf is a member of the House Appropriations Committee, the committee responsible for the original bill content
If you are as astounded as me, you should see what Kermit had to say on SNL, “what next are twizzlers and a a grape soda a ‘fruit salad’”? if you have time, please send a note to Congressman Wolf thanking him for favoring agribusiness over the health and well being of school children.
